Hurricane relief for Nicaragua

Two recent hurricanes hit Nicaragua destroying infrastructure to rural communities, leaving thousands without food, medicine or water. Wells collapsed and are contaminated by the latrines that collapsed. Houses, crops, animals washed away. For only $37.77 a food basket, I’ll be going by horseback to distribute emergency supplies. A truck will be delivering water jugs, rice and beans in bulk to the church providing temporary shelter for families. Rebuilding homes brick by brick will come next.  My goal is to distribute 300 food baskets at $37.77 each. A basic supply bag to prepare a families holiday meal would contain the following:

4 libras de Azucar C$60 (U$1.79)
1 Libra de Cafe C$100 (U$2.98)
1 Libra de Leche en Polvo C$100 (U$2.98)
4 Espaguetti C$60 (U$1.79)
2 Avenas C$60 (U$1.79)
2 Paquetes de Galleta Dulce C$80 (U$2.38
2 latas de Sardina C$60 (U$1.79)
4 Sobres de Sopa Maggi C$40 (U$1.19)
2 Masas para hacer frituras C$60 (U$1.79)
10 libras de Arroz C$120 (U$3.58)
4 libras Frijoles C$60 (U$1.79)
2 litros de Aceite c$110 (U$3.28)
3 Jabon Protex C$66  (U$1.96)

2 Detregente para ropa C$60 (U$1.79)
2 jabon lavaplatos C$60 (U$1.79)
4 Papel Higuienico C$100 (U$2.98)

Total Paquete C$1226 (U$37.77)

Thank you for considering to help my relief efforts. My family and me have been diligent mask wearers staying home since March so this is a risky endeavor but my compassion for the humble people in Nicaragua need all the support possible. I’m personally matching every dollar raised and photos will be shared of those we’ve helped.
